GONE - Free to aspiring modder - FT03 Mini

 

FT03 mini with non-working SST40.

 

When I received the new light the emitter came on blue for a few seconds before it died. Replacing it is something I am not interested in doing at this time. I would like to pass it along to a fellow BLF member. All I ask is for a prepaid USPS shipping label to be sent. This is for someone new or relatively new to modding flashlights to learn/practice on. So if you are an accomplished modded please allow someone else to get this. No firm rules on who is eligible - it is just an honor system.

 

It is all boxed and ready to go. Send me a PM if interested.

 

P.S. - it is blue

That’s very nice of you! Thumbs Up

Keep me in mind if no ‘newbies’ are interested. I’m an intermediate level modder. Party

What a great thing your doing OP - i like it!

 

hope someone gets to try this mod out. It actually will be a good project, because with those auxiliary leds inside the reflector (and on the mcpcb) swapping an LED is not as straight forward as a standard ft03. I never took mine apart before i sold it, but unless there are two boards for the mcpcb and aux mcpcb, the swap will be a great learning experience for a new/moderate modder. 

 

Hope it works out!

 

IF the person who gets this doesn't end up having success fixing it and wants help, i am willing to help out too (not saying i can definitely, but i should probably be able to). Id even work on it and send it back to you lol. 

 

Good luck to all!

Artie, you’re an Oak, so is the OP. I 100% believe you too. People like you guys, for me, are the heart and soul of this community.

lol, thank you! thats funny because if i didn't have a couple of projects going on i was trying to work out i would've asked. i feel like my experience level qualifies me, but the fact that i already am working a couple different small projects disqualifies me (kind of like im taking it away from someone who this could be there first project). Amber Osrams work for me! LOL

Thanks for the kind words.

 

When I first found BLF I knew almost nothing about flashlights. For the last 4-5 years I have been taking from this community. Mainly knowledge and information. Finally I had an opportunity to give something back. Although there was one thing I had been giving too much of. My money to the flashlight sellers.

 

I really do appreciate the BLF community

I feel the same way about the community. I have been given so much by it. Help and advice and lessons. That’s why I appreciate it so much too. There’s an avid willingness to help and share and bestow wisdom here. That’s what I felt you and ArtieT59 were epitomizing so well. So thank you guys again.
